home of distinction
Very island tropical to very urban is how George Plumides describes the Hyskos’ approach to their home
interiors. A Lillian August gilded, hand-carved wooden mirror emulates a porthole window over a navy chest,
top right, inside the foyer, top left. With a front entry flanked with fanlights, the overall effect is beachy
grounded in traditional.
The Pavilion Room is modeled after a bar in Antigua. The Hyskos really liked the vibe and asked for a combina-tion
of light and dark tones that was mindful of the hybrid Anglicized Caribbean motifs. Troy Kenny designed
the pyramid ceiling but it was the idea of her aunt, Mary Virginia Freeman, who assisted the homeowners as
they chose light fixtures, cabinets and hardware, to place the baby grand piano beneath it. The room furnished
with cane chairs features a Calcutta marble wet bar and looks across the pool and the patio.
